Constitutional amendment for campaign finance reform passes first hurdle in Delaware state senate!  BRAVO!  (WDEL) Great Start, Delaware!  Boast about this everywhere!  Keep this dialogue going in all your circles ~ keep it focused on restoring the principles of Democracy.  Find encouragement here: https://movetoamend.org/toolkit/developing-movement-strength-through-diversity
“Let me give you a word on the philosophy of reform. The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims have been born of earnest struggle. The conflict has been exciting, agitating, all absorbing, and for the time being putting all other ...

Wonder with me tomorrow!
On March 20, 2015, three extraordinary celestial events converge: the March equinox, a total solar eclipse, and a New Moon which is also a Super Moon. We invite you to connect to these cosmic energies as you renew your commitments to yourself.

Ooooooo, what a find!  BEAUTIFUL SOUL
 
"Soul"
Uttering a sound is a song from your Soul.
Historicity Oracles of written communication using graphemes, glyphs, graphs, logographs, ideographs, pictographic symbols of what Sound looks like. The joining of ether, air, earth, fire, and water.

"True writing", in which the content of a linguistic utterance (sound made) is encoded, so that another reader can reconstruct and decipher the exact meaning of the utterance that has been "spoken", a "written record".

Celebrating Selma & the Legend, but waiting for the Truth of the Real Diversity story that day  . . . it took multi-ethnic inter-faith leaders arm-in-arm to lead the way across that bridge.  Now that is happening again as our Rainbow of Tribe frees the Earth from her bondage. 
No race overcomes on its own; no faith rises alone.

Ankuntuwakan Ehenta Wehikiyànkw, Lenapehokink!  We bless our Ancient Homeland, Lenapehokink!  This will always be our Sacred Ground even when She lives beneath the sea . . . She will live as we learn to restore honor. Peace is the path to restore honor. Nulamhitawananank!   Pass the Peace . . . for Real.
 
"Standing on Sacred Ground Headed for Public Television Broadcast" www.sacredland.org
We are thrilled to announce that the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) has accepted all four episodes of Standing on Sacred Ground for broadcast distribution. Public television stations nationwide will have the opportunity to schedule the films for broadcast starting this spring.   

Some stations may show episodes as early as April to celebrate Earth Day. Other stations have indicated they will broadcast the films during May's Asian-Pacific Islanders Heritage Month. Hopefully, we will have major carriage across the country in November for Native American Heritage Month.

If you are interested in when the series might air on your local PBS/public television station, you can inquire on the contact section of your station's website. Also, check your local listings and consult the station website schedule of air dates between April and November.

We hope you will consider hosting a screening party in your home. We have produced thought-provoking Discussion Guides for each film. If you want to dig even deeper, you can download our comprehensive Teacher's Guides, which provide a wealth of information that will further enhance your viewing experience. 

Thanks again to everyone who has supported and encouraged us over the years. As important as community screenings, film festivals and educational distribution are, public television broadcast has been one of our primary goals, and we are very pleased to celebrate this good news with you!

Please, consider Future Generations as Sacred and save their world
Bad news for the rainforest and its inhabitants: Indonesia’s President Widodo is planning a $1.35 billion biofuel subsidy that would dramatically speed up deforestation. The palm oil barons are looking forward to the windfall and are ready to fire up the chainsaws. Please speak out against this insanity!

A hidden gem, great people, good, home cooked food. It is a sit down diner with outdoor seating, too. Great place to enjoy a dock side morning all year long.

His photos have always mesmerizes, but having him in the same issue of Outdoor Delaware magazine about Delaware's First Environmentalists, makes me want a poetry book with his photography of the original people! What do you think Kevin? Envisioning the world through Kevin's eyes restores my sense of well being. Thank you, Kevin

I had a flat tire while dropping my son off as an intern for the Sun Moon Farm CSA on Thomas Road in Rindge. The whole staff was kind and helpful, they let me hang out until the right tire arrived from their supplier and even shared their fantastic, fresh, everything bagle! You guys are the BEST! Let me know when the picnic table is up by the pretty stone walk :-) ~RA from Delaware
